    Windows 10

    PC instantly turns off

    Hey, I'm not too sure where too put this so here is the issue:

    Every time I turned my PC on it would stay on for a few seconds then reboot, no BIOS screen or anything showed, I finally got it to work and it said my BIOS was corrupt and it gave me an option to retrieve a backup, which I did and then it started working, it then came up with "Windows can't start up" it gave me recovery options, I tried system restore, no luck, I then completely wiped my PC and reinstalled everything through the recovery, it turned on, everything was fine.

    I then turned it off to plug in all of my cables and when I plugged the power cord in, it started the same thing except now it turns on then INSTANTLY boots up again and it continuously loops until I turn it off.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Try resetting the CMOS of the board. It usually involves moving or removing a jumper and unplugging the power from the power supply.

    Thanks for replying,
    I've tried resetting it and replacing it but still no joy.
